Hi - I'm Steve, working as a 2D/UI artist in games for the past 10 years.

Currently UX director at HitPoint Inc., and in the evenings creator of the indie space-cat game 😺 cairn4.itch.io/mewnbase

Worked a bunch on refactoring vehicle stuff today, supporting multiple vehicle types, making their data/stats provided by a json data file. And also added this... 😺 Wooo box2d joints.

Worked more last night on trees that are able to be grown from seeds, and some improved inventory item tool tip UI.

🎧 Have had this Orbital track on repeat for most of the afternoon/evening: youtube.com/watch?v=k0ogD6qi6r

Writing store-page descriptions and marketing copy for my own games sometimes feels like one of the hardest things to do.

When the coffee hasn't finished brewing before your morning standup meeting starts 😩

Worked on adding a lower-tech, outdoor garden patch last night in .

Finally. Last night was the first good night of sleep I've had in at least a week. 😴

Finally made an TextButton sub class that auto-scales its label to fit inside πŸ™ƒ

Although now some buttons have smaller text than others... still better than the text totally spilling out and overlapping the edges imo

Uploaded MewnBase v0.45 last night!

Certain plants and ice will now regen over time. Improved and fixed some airlock issues. And some other nice bugfixes.
